Blyth Power Station
In November 2009 we announced that, given the current economic climate, we would not be making an application to build a new supercritical coal-fired power station at Cambois on the north bank of the River Blyth.
We firmly believe new cleaner coal-fired generation should have a role to play in a future low carbon economy, alongside gas, nuclear power and increasing renewable energy sources.
We have been investigating the possibility of a new station at the site over recent years and we continue to see the site as an important one for RWE npower and in terms of the UK's future power generation. The existing infrastructure on site makes it ideal for power generation.
We will continue to discuss any plans we have for the area with local people and the relevant authorities.
